Uploading to One Drive

Aug 25, 2016

I thought this was going to be fairly simple, but now I'm just confused.

I need to upload my Storyline files to a shared One Drive so others can do a Qa on them. When I view the .html files from my computer, they open and play fine. But when I try to view them from the files I've uploaded to the drive, I get a blank screen. 

Huh? I'm sure it's something simple, but it's got me head scratchin'.

Hi Louisa,

If you're publishing for LMS and the people downloading the file are viewing it from their desktop and not uploading it to an LMS they'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail. To properly test your published content and share it with others, make sure to upload it to the environment for which it was published. For instance, if you were to Publish for LMS you'll want to upload the published output to an LMS environment to properly test it. 

If you want them  to be able to access the course directly from their computer after downloading it from One Drive, you'll need to use the Publish for CD option then have them double click the Launch_Story.exe to view the course. Hope that helps! :)
